Today I am telling you all about my love affair with Australian Bushflower Essences and giving you the chance to try some for yourself.
My family and I find them incredibly beneficial and will be life long fans. Another ‘tool’ to support us in a happy, healthy, holistic life. I have an even deeper understanding and appreciation of them since I met my beautiful friend Alisha, who is a qualified and very experienced essence practitioner at Naughty Naturopath Mum.
So, what are Australian Bushflower Essences?
They are the essence of our native bushflowers used as a system of healing. The way I understand it is that homeopathic remedies work on the physical body whereas flower essences work on the emotional side of us. There are other flower remedies but I found the Australian Bushflowers Essences resonated more strongly with me and were more effective.
Alisha says… “The essences provide energetic release of stored issues that may be blocking you from achieving emotional and physical balance.
Once the emotion or memory has been released from the subconscious, the physical issue that came about from this emotion has the freedom to go back into balance.
Ian White, a scientist and 5th generation herbalist, is the founder of this type of medicine and since 1987, Ian has travelled Australia to find the native flowers to make each remedy. Now naturopaths, medical doctors, pharmacists and energy healers work with them on the basis that when emotional balance is restored, true healing can occur.”
How do you take them?
The essences come in the form of drops, mists and in skin care.
The drops come in ready-made blends for common ailments or conditions or you can get a custom made blend. Alisha asks you a series of questions about your current situation and mindset. Using her extensive knowledge and experience of the bushflowers and her intuition, she prepares a special blend to help you at the point in time. You generally take 7 drops under the tongue.
The mists are a combination of the essences and aromatherapy oils. You can use them as a skin toner or hydrater, but also they are powerful enough to shift energy. I talked about how much I love the Space Clearing Mist here.
The skin care range is called The Love System. It is beautiful organic skin care infused with the bushflower essences and aromatherapy oils. You actually feel the effect of the essences as it sinks into your skin. It is a very sublime feeling.
What do you use them for?
Alisha says …. “The most common remedies I make up are for anxiety, stress, sleeping issues, depression, hormonal imbalance, ADHD, digestive issues, concentration, memory and focus, motivation, purpose and life direction, grief, moving on and letting go of old hurts and traumas, addictions and obsessive type behaviours, bed wetting, teething, weight issues and more.
Anyone and everyone can take them for absolutely any imbalance you can think of! Whether it’s physical or emotional, there is a blend of essences for it! They are safe and gentle for any age from newborn babies upwards and they are safe during pregnancy, breastfeeding and alongside of any prescription medications or supplements.”
What do I think?
I like to use the drops, mists and skin care regularly as I feel it creates a kind of ‘layering’ effect. I have found the range to work for so many conditions, not just on me, but my whole family. I will tell you of two significant events that I found the essences incredibly powerful for.
The first was taking Emergency Essence for some panic attacks I was having last year. Within a few minutes of taking the drops under my tongue, I was able to calm right down and come out of the panic attack. Needless to say I don’t go anywhere without my Emergency Essence anymore!
The second was when I had broken my ankle earlier this year. I was bedridden for two months and did not think I would cope well mentally and emotionally with this challenge. Alisha came to my rescue with a custom-made blend that allowed me to say focused, positive and happy. I noticed when I ran out of drops that I started to get depressed and cranky with being cooped up. I have her number on speed dial now!! 😉
I will let you in on a little secret and I am not just saying this because she is my friend either. I really think that the love and intuition that Alisha uses to prepare her essences is pretty magical. I have used other essences from a store and they just don’t have the same effect on me as the ones I get from Alisha. Still good but just not as powerful. Funnily enough, Alisha told me recently that other people have been saying that too, so it’s not just me who thinks this stuff is awesome. Check out what some of Alisha’s other fans have to say.
